Because a rapper ain’t legit unless he’s got a few plugs in him.*
Rapper Fabolous was shot early Tuesday as he stood at a Manhattan parking garage, spurring a sequence of events that left him both hospitalized in stable condition and under arrest, police said.
The 28-year-old rapper, whose legal name is John Jackson, was shot once in the thigh when a male with a gun approached him and three others and opened fire, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wysokowski said.
The four jumped into a vehicle and fled, attracting the attention of police when they ran a red light. Officers stopped them and discovered two loaded guns in the vehicle, both of which were apparently unlicensed, Wysokowski said. All four men were arrested, and charges were pending.
The rapper was taken to a hospital. Police were searching for the shooter.
Eight more shots, and he’s guaranteed to go multi-platinum. (Remember Fiddy set the standard at nine.)
Maybe our girl Saadia can hook him up.
His street cred would probably go through the roof once she’s finished with him.
*I know I’m a day late on this, but I couldn’t let it pass without commenting. Besides, it’s a perfect tie-in to South Park Saadia.
